Lodestars Anthology Japan has to be one of the most beautiful travel magazines dedicated to our favourite country that we’ve come across to date.

Covering the entire country, from Taketomi Island in Okinawa right up to Asahidake in Hokkaido, this travelogue is perfect for first time or second time travellers to Japan looking for inspiration and travel secrets from those in the know.

Beautifully illustrated with drawings of picturesque onsen towns, Japanese food sketches and images from talented photographers from all over the globe, this coffee-table book is a key accessory in planning your travels to Japan. Contributors to the book include globally recognised Japanese chef Maori Murata (author of Tokyo Cult Recipes), flower artist Azuma Makoto and well-known writers on Japan such as Danielle Demetriou, Tokyo correspondent for The Telegraph.

To give you an idea of what to expect from the book, we’ve included a short extract from one of the travel stories for you to enjoy:
